Movie Info

The past returns to haunt two siblings who once bonded through the power of imagination in this independent thriller. Growing up in the English countryside, Brian and Bernice Usher grew obsessed with local folklore, and passed the time drifting through an imaginary world inspired by their extensive readings. Now the two siblings are all grown up, and returning home for the holidays. Upon arriving, Bernice's boyfriend gets an overwhelming sense of impending doom. Later, when Brian and Bernice are reunited, a powerful evil descends upon the home, and a peaceful family holiday takes a particularly dark turn. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Audience Reviews for The Toybox

mishmash of unresolved elements, confusing storytelling, and a convoluted plot. I think it involved two siblings, one who left the house, one who stayed. The one who stayed lost his way and figuratively got stuck in their childhood imaginations. This would have been better if they hadn't taken it so seriously and tried to build on the camp a bit (it was there, trust me). They could have ended with a very solid "B" horror film (and for true horror buffs, we don't mind spending time there!), instead of going for a serious thriller and falling so, so short. Utterly misses the mark.

I watched this on Hulu expecting it to be a D movie and it surpassed my expectations. It was a C movie. Still, it kept me un-bored for an hour or so. I liked the unique characters...but the movie ended up being just another horror that tries to be scarier than it really is.

Yeah I didnt really like the movie. It looked good when I what the movie was about but then I watched it. It wasnt that good at all. When I saw the beginning I thought it was going to be good because in the beginning it made me feel sick. After that however it just got weird and pretty stupid.
